Each of our Online Sprints is hosted by a trained Writing Guide. All of our Writing Guides are working writers themselves.

Meg Hughes is a screenwriter dabbling in any genre that she has a good story for. She previously served as Creative Executive at an independent film production company. She finds that helping other writers develop their work has the added bonus of improving her own writing.
